Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Peaceful, quiet, charming, this new Guesthouse/Casita in a private compound off of Acequia Madre offers a beautiful retreat in the heart of Santa Fe's historic Eastside. Architect designed in traditional Santa Fe style, with smooth plaster walls, fine woodwork, high beamed ceilings and skylights, the bright, comfortably furnished interior overlooks a lush garden planted to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Help yourself to fresh herbs from the garden if you feel like cooking, or try one of one of Santa Fe's many outstanding restaurants instead. Enjoy a stroll along the 400 year old Acequia Madre, right outside your door.

One block from Canyon Road galleries, shops and restaurants, a short walk from the Plaza, downtown, Museum Hill, and the Railyard, take off from here to explore the best of Santa Fe on foot, through one of the most distinctive historic neighborhoods in the country. Don't hassle with parking during tourist season or special events like Indian Market or the Folk Art Festival. On Christmas Eve, walk out your front door to join in Santa Fe's spectacular Farolito Walk. A wonderful place to visit any time of the year!

About Margaret Denney

We have lived in Santa Fe since 1993. As architects and artists, we love the aesthetic appeal of Santa Fe's unique historic district and chose to live in this neighborhood because of that. Santa Fe's small town atmosphere combined with its wide range of cultural opportunities fits our lifestyle. We also appreciate the natural beauty of the area and the easy access to hiking, cycling, and winter sport opportunities.

Margaret Denney purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Margaret Denney chose Santa Fe

We think this location is simply the best in Santa Fe. Our guesthouse is tucked away in a lovely private compound in a beautiful, unique neighborhood, and provides easy access to all that Santa Fe has to offer.

What makes this cottage unique

One reason we chose to live in this spot is because we love to walk around Santa Fe. From our home we are minutes (on foot) from Canyon Road, the Downtown Subscription, the Plaza, museums and all of the shops, galleries, restaurants, and homes along the way.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A small haven within a larger haven (Santa Fe). I always felt it was like coming home.

Thank you Peg & Ken for it all.

Great Little Quiet Casita

  • 5 of 5

Great location, clean, and well maintained. Good location for exploring Canyon Road galleries and the historic downtown. The casita had everything we needed and was comfortable for a short stay. For those that sleep/wake at different times, it would have been better if the bedroom was separated from the living area by a door instead of a drapery.

Second Stay at this Lovely Casita

  • 5 of 5

Just finished my second wonderful stay at the Acequia Madre Casita! As a former resident of Santa Fe and frequent visitor, I know what I'm talking about when I say this is a little gem! You will find charm, comfort and everything you need in a lovely setting in a great location! You are tucked away in a beautiful neighborhood close to Canyon Road and the Plaza, but you will feel like you're in your own private compound. My new home away from home.

Close to downtown/plaza. Adequate size although bathroom is quite small. Not as comfortable as luxury hotel, good for a few days.

Beautiful light-filled casita in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this casita cannot be beat! So close to Canyon Road and a short walk to the Governor's Plaza. The casita was exactly as pictured -very cozy and spotlessly clean. We really enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave!
